Over us finishing one place outside the Champions League places then we’d have had an excellent case as that’s when they were first done for spending breaches. Of course being the softest touch in town we went along with the flow and didn’t say anything. Hopefully the unwillingness to rock the boat we showed is reciprocated in this case.
...our "punishment" has been that we've had to run everything by them, agreed a budget etc.
If we didn't do that, then we'd be in breach and face a potential punishment.
